The man has been busy....

Between frequent trips to Indianapolis Roger has been busy. This is latest creation....he made it for Lorelei's dad.
This knife really has a nice feel to it....the wood for the handles is African Padauk. It is an an excellent hardwood with straight grain...it hard,heavy and resists decay.

Hi Rose, Roger is so talented --when it comes to making knives. Has he ever sold them to businesses--or is it just a hobby for him?????

Tell him that I'm impressed.

Enjoy your little precious one.
Hugs,
Betsy

Padauk is beautiful. My husband uses it to turn spindles for hand spinners.

I like the excellent level of craftsmanship needed to produce such a fine looking knife. That would be a prize and heritage item for anyone lucky enough to come by an example.

Roger is an artisan/craftsman! Being a one-time minor knife collector, this would be a treasure!

And a very Merry Christmas to you and your entire family, Rose. We wish you also a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

We both have much to be thankful for, right?
